So it all kicks off tomorrow. The US Open was ridiculed because the course was so hard and dry nobody could keep a ball in play (except our Tommy on the last day).
And yet Carnoustie is seeing the ball roll further than most of us can hit a wedge shot.
Tiger is back and has left his driver out of his golf back, just as he did at Hoylake back in the day and is ripping Irons 333 yards down the fairways.
Obviously any European Tour member who wins this week would leap into contention to work alongside me in Paris in September
Most of the ET’s “big names” from the past are off the pace or off form at the moment. Stenson, Westwood, McDowell, hell, even Rory’s showing signs of putting like me at the moment.
So who is going to win it? Will we see another Jan Van de Velde moment?
My “Fantasy Race to Dubai” team is (remarkably I’m in 524th plce this year!)
Alex Mr Consistent but won’t win Noren
Rory there or there abouts until he putts McIlroy
Ian F*** ^^%&b Marshal $%%# Poulter
Tyrell bumble along Hatton
Tommy so much shorter in real life Fleetwood
Justin Mr nice guy Rose as Captain.
Or will the personality transplant donor Patrick Reed, Mr 1 GCSE almost Dustin Johnson or even Flop Shot himself Mickleson win it.
Speith has been so off the pace this year after getting all technical with his golf swing.
Or, simply because it would be such a brilliant story, could Tiger ACTUALLY do it?
With no football, it should at least be a decent alternative watch than Love Island.
Who have you got your money on gang?
